Restoring a wildlife corridor 16.1.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A new study by researchers at the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) has proposed a new approach of working with local communities and other institutions, towards restoration of the Edeyarhalli-Doddasampige Wildlife Corridor (ED corridor) near Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple (BRT) Tiger Reserve. Very often, wildlife corridors are devoid of monitoring, and are subject to fragmentation and degradation, as local communities depend on them to obtain forest resources like timber, firewood, food and medicine. The ED wildlife corridor is one such critical wildlife corridor in Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple Tiger Reserve. It connects BRT to adjoining protected areas in the Mysuru-Nilgiri region. It also provides physical connectivity between the Eastern and the Western Ghats and is inhabited by 15 mammalian species including the Asian Elephant, Bengal Tiger and Indian Gaur. Soligas, an indigenous tribal community, and a few other non-tribal communities are the major inhabitants of this ...

'State Govt, Dist Adm responsible for BRTS delay' 7.12.2017 Deccan Herald - District

MP Pralhad Joshi stated that the State Government and the District Administration are responsible for the inordinate delay in the implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) between Hubballi and Dharwad.

"We repeatedly asked the officials to speed up the works. We even brought the then union urban development minister Venkaiah Naidu to inspect the works. The project was approved in 2012, works started in 2013, and the project is not yet ready for commissioning," he lamented.

Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar noted that officials have informed that civil works of the BRTS project would be completed by January end, and the full-fledged launch of the project would be by March end.

"There is no question of playing election politics with regard to this project, as we would have been very happy if it was completed earlier," he added.

Bengaluru-based Lanchamukta Karnataka Nirmana Vedike joint secretary Narendra Kumar has stated that a writ petition would be filed before the High Court within 15 days, seeking directions to form ward committees in remaining 10 municipal corporations in the State, including Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC).
